It Won’t Be Pretty…

 

Will martial law be declared on American soil?

Will economic collapse and urban riots result in the final and total loss of civil liberties right here at home?

It could happen, and it is one of the “eventualities” that the military is preparing for, though they are constitutionally barred from being used domestically against the American people.

Part of the U.S. Army’s latest ad campaign, broadcast frequently during football games and sporting events, and widely across many television programs, includes a 30-second spot that shows soldiers training with shields used for domestic riot control.

I understand the military plays ‘games’ wherein various eventualities are planned and discussed.  But for domestic riot control?

Just as the ‘poll’ taken a few times over the past 20 years (regarding will rank-and-file troops follow orders to disarm civilians) I fear this is a portend of things not good in our future.

And just like the cop who wants to keep bringing home a paycheck, who in the military will refuse to comply?

Or, more specifically, how many?

Remember Katrina?

I see troops and cops battling each other regarding what orders are legal and constitutional, even before civilians are involved.

And, my friends, it won’t be pretty.

    The Constitution? That old thing? It’s never stopped them before…
    It’s been said elsewhere, “Armies make lousy cops and cops make lousy armies”. The only infighting I can see between cops and troops is who’s going to get the most credit.
